with static] [crisp recording of jazz music] (narrator) music and technology have always been closely intertwined. as instrument production, sound recording, and the means of distribution have changed, so has the world's music. [sticks clacking] [cultural music montage] (slobin) technology has become quite decisive for world music-making since the advent of the industrial age in a few key ways. one is the creation of new instrument types that simply couldn't be built before. the modern piano depends on high steel techniques that just simply weren't available until a certain point in the 19th century. instruments like the modern saxophone, the modern flute-- these are all high-tech in a 19th century way. [screeching, reverberating cymbal crash] another way in which technology has become decisive is in the invention of sound reproduction. it simply was the case that before about 1890, music vanished into the air. you had to remember the way somebody played something that you heard once in your life because you would never hear that again. once you could reproduce that sound, you could s

at the policy implications of emerging technology. before getting us started, i want to say what you're planning this event a few months ago, i thought how appropriate we are doing that's. turns out i was wrong by a day. tomorrow is the official commemoration of the end of world war ii, at least in europe. the reason i thought that was appropriate was because obviously no other conflict has so altered the nature of warfare and particularly the way to disguise them became lethal to populations in a way it never had them before. also, world war ii of course has the pit mines the way in which warfare alters technologies but then come back home. that is one of the themes we are going to explore today that there's a broad fascination, a technology evolved tremendously in large measure to the mobilization and the conflicts overseas and the application of this technology for domestic uses. people are naturally unsettled by that, but there's also opportunity this technology affords them that is another aspect we are going explore today, not just the pitfalls and dangers that concerns, but the opportunit

in the second grade level. you can find out more about that. the second piece is around internet technology. and all classrooms will be upgraded and that some schools have certify wireless to run a classroom of thirty ipads but to among that district up graitd it would be an investment as well. we also learned it's still hard-wired for the internet activity. next is around the new student nutrition process. we've heard the benefits of enabling families about the lunch program. we've leaders about the item student system and it will be more effective how we store data within the system. we learned maybe at one school or principle will have about thirty different programs and this is a movement toward that effectiveness. another significant clank in increase around the capacity is in the technology personnel. and this is enabled the school to double the staff and how do we implement upgrades to those new systems. we do know that between 2008 and 2011 and have an increase in technology overall. we want to. to the attention to attendance. and why kind of software that addresses student attendan

we signaled from our technology company that is they were telling us that our payroll tax was a job-killing effort here that we had to change it. what we went ahead and fixed and it and got it done and after the dishandling of the redevelopment towards find a lasting solution to fund affordable house and is did that with the creation of affordable housing fund 30 million-dollar a year for the next 30 years to build affordable housings and to insentive eyes builders to get more housing on their sites and and invite police and firefighters into an emergency responders commute in san francisco to hmm with the down payments of the first too time home buyers efforts we were asked to vest? our neighborhood park and is streets and we did just that with our million dollar general obligation bond to build and construct more open space most importantly, we put san franciscans back to work and we have a growing economy and we have invested in our city. so the year of 20 if we will, was about getting everything done. and when we did that, we were complimented by an unemployment rate that w
technological and political factors are leading to the kind of militarization of terrorists and insurgent groups around the world today. so i will talk about geopolitical factors specifically this notion of a new world order, sometimes referred to as t unipolar era in which one superpower predominates. this has drastically change the security environment within which terrorists operate. after that i will talk about new technology and how it can be effectively utilized by small terrorist groups and lone wolves . then i will look at some case studies coming including the american extreme-right, the radical environmentalist movement, the anti globalization movement, and radical islam. next, i will talk about the implications of this leaderless resistance trend and weapons of mass destruction. after that, i will discuss the characteristics of the new face of terrorism and why it is moving in the direction of leaderless resistance. then i will talk about some recent examples. first, i will discuss the the case in norway and after that will talk a little bit about chris border and finally recapping my
and his administration that we've seen such technology growth, employment and vitality in this city. we've seen that here through incubation and more importantly at this particular juncture we are attracting companies from silicone valley and the entire world to be a must be location for companies that want to compete globally. it's under the mayor's watch in my view that has seen silicone valley the highest tech nation in the world. so we at kilroy we fully agree and support the mayor's approach and he's creative in incredible effectiveness in leaded the country. he's succeeded in instilling the very highest level of industrial confidence and instrumental in attracting the world leading accommodation like work and he's doing everything to ensure this city is a place to work and live. here at kilroy we worked really hard to make 350 mission an important milestone in its progress. we do that by trying to provide a stimulating place to work and in addition to the landscape and something that is leading edge and sustainability. we are honored to mark it's beginning and particular
of technology in computing. there is so much discussion about where this idea is going, but i know the future of technology is invested in. the cloud, we all know that and we know the greatest companies are there to support this. well, in addition to being great employers and having great vision, i want to thank kilroy and sales force for also being great attribute -- contributors to our society. they are contribute to go -- contribute -ing to make our city great. it's not just doing a great process, it's also sharing the vision that we are participating in building a great society and you should see more and more of the philanthropic goals. this is what makes me happy not only to be here because even though we are within a half mile of 300,000 jobs from a half mile of this center, we know this is job creating, but we also know the people who work here want a great city to be in and want to contribute to a quality of life and build the great events program and where there is a gap, where people are struggling, you have benny hang with his wife to contribute to great hospitals, special progr
in legislation and it might be scientific changes and it might be technology changes. so, our main goal at this point is to say, this is something that needs attention and needs focus. here it is. so where are the issues and what can we do to work on that together. and again, we are hoping that this innovation initiative, this is not just about gun safety, this is about mental health, this is about other technologies that can help with school safety. so certainly we think that it is broad enough to look at all of those. >> i know that one of you said that this was a marathon and not a sprint, do you have a time frame maybe of telling us publicly about your first really good idea? are we talking about weeks or months or something that is going to go on for over several years? >> well, the things are going to happen very soon. things are going to happen very late. we are going to have efforts that evolve over time. from a marathon perspective, when you look at cultural change, you look at society change that is generational. this could be 20, 30 years, this could be similar to how we deal

. they have access to modern technology. they have social networking. they have smart phones. they have the internet and the use of technology then allows them to access questionnaires about their substance use, to participate in social networking support groups, and to link up with electronic health records or their counselors and to have online counseling if they're reluctant to go to face-to-face counseling. so technology offers a great deal of promise that young people are more comfortable with and use on a regular basis. so this is a revolutionary time for our youth and we hope to take advantage of the technological advances to promote recovery.

technologies with your help and those of your colleagues, we will make a front-line agents more effective and provide them with help that they need to be more successful in a cost-effective way. one specific thing i have seen firsthand is that an aircraft without an advanced radar system on board to help detect illegal activity on the ground is of very little value. far too many of the aircraft were deployed in support of the border patrol are not fitted with cameras are sensors that have been proven effective. last week i visited a place where find three different types of helicopters and only one of those is out with the kind of technologies. yet the two allies and ineffective. we have to be smarter than this. by comparison, in arizona i sign inexpensive single engine airplane that had been fitted with an advanced infrared radar camera system which had proven to be extremely effective and inexpensive to operate. however, the border patrol has 16 more of these aircraft that don't have any advanced sensors on board that i barely used. in fact, they are almost worthless. we need to fix tha
: in terms of water supply, wastewater, stormwater development -- these are independent technologies. but what came first, most often, was a water supply system. the basic system is essentially the same as we used back in the 19th century. and in some cases, some of the same pipes. grusheski: philadelphia was the first american city to develop a water system and to take on as a municipal responsibility water delivery to all of its citizens. when william penn laid out the city, he actually chose a spot of land that had a lot of groundwater. however, by 1730, 30,000 people lived within the first seven blocks of philadelphia, next to the delaware river. well, 30,000 people caused filth in the city and polluted their water sources. the groundwater was not potable. and in one year, 1/6 of the population died of yellow fever. now, they didn't know at the time that yellow fever was carried by mosquitoes. but the health issue was major in that first movement to build a water system. narrator: so they set out to find the cleanest source of water. although the majority of philadelphia's water

(applause) let me conclude with a little bit of sports and that is to say that, we are just about in spring training, world champions san francisco. also we are putting a bid together for super bowl 50, or 51 whichever one they will take, i'm be happy with that, yes, you know, we have got world baseball series coming in in march, in the at&t park, we have america's cup 55 days of sailing coming in the summer charles schwab cup in october and now, we are getting ready potentially to have more international sporting ebbs that really come to compliment what we do not just in san francisco but for the whole bay area and i want to suggest to you that we have an opportunity to do that through the one s f program that we created to sustain all of the theater we are doing to make sure we do it right with your help. and i'll say to you're to you and i think i have said this in some other circles, knowing when we were at the
you said. it sounds like you're like a luddite, a guy who doesn't like technology. you have to use the tech. don't let the tech use you, my friend. >> there you go. i mean, if we could have our technologies conform to our lives rather than continually trying to optimize human beings to our technology we'd be in a lot better shape. >> stephen: what's better than this? this is the now-now. the now-now is technology. and if you're not using the technology right now you're not in the now-now, you're in the then. >> i think the technology is in the then. you and i are in the now-now. the tweeting, facebook just happened. the big data engine is looking at what just happened. they're not really here with us in human time. >> stephen: what if this thing were talking like whatever we call this right now, what if all of that in human history was just to kill time until the i-phone got here? okay. if you can't do this with me when i'm on the toilet but my i-phone can entertain me in the men's room. this is my friend. you know what i'm talking about. >> i do know. i do. >> stephen: checking my

technology such as drones which actually kill people, a lot of people died in afghanistan. support this, and then we all understand what you mean when you talk about strengthening the european element of nato. it's quite simple for anyone who looks at the state of the defense. natoments to be -- nato wants to be able to decide what crisis to intervene in, and when they don't see fit to take action, leave it to the europeeps. i pick up what you said about supplying planes in flight. we talk of cooperation, but there's none because of the clashes of interest amongst nato imperialist powers, and, obviously, the united states will use its leverage in nato. nothing can change in nato unless washington gives the nod. it's also clear that when the united states applies the brakes, or if one of the members applies the breaks, france, then the united states will say, oh, well, we don't want to intervene. let the europeans do it. .. >> translator: you were very brief, very concise. i'll try to do the same. three specific questions. colleagues have are detached on this pooling and sharing or defen

of the living with physical illness from the competing forces of culture, social norms, and technology that surrounds patients. this was a social history as activism as it is a social history of disease because it was equally hard to tease out advancements in treatment and research from the patients and advocates that taught tirelessly for them. it is a chronological book that focuses on post world war ii america, which was a time of, quote, irresistible progress, between antibioctoberrics and vaccinations, we had control over acute, infectious diseases and thought we were a step away from curing everything that ailed us. at this point, we were living long enough, we were not dying from commune diseases, that chronic disease emerged as a public health priority. as you heard in the introduction, i'm a lifelong patient myself, and these experiences informed the writing of this book. i have a rare genetic respiratory disease, which is a mouthful, so people just say pcd, if they say it at all, as well as other chronic illnesses and teach writing for the health sciences at north eastern and
